Toshiba mini NB305-N310 with mini NB305-N440 drivers for Windows7 upgrade?

Is that workable if I have Toshiba mini NB305-N310 and I download all the missing drivers from mini NB305-N440 so I can upgrade so Windows7 since Toshiba mini NB305-N310 comes preinstalled only on Windows Xp. I picked the Toshiba mini NB305-N310 because it's black which I liked a lot but want to use Windows7 instead. I have read someone has successfully upgrade to Windows7 but with a few problems such as the hotkeys not working on Windows7. I am wondering if I download all the drivers from mini NB305-N440 to replace the drivers for NB305-N310, would that be workable since they're essentially the same hardware and configurations with different OS.

 

Any advice from Toshiba tech can answer this question?

It's unnecessary. The Windows 7 drivers and utilities for your model are here.

 

But it's a big job. You would need to make a clean install and add all of the drivers and utilities. If you move ahead with this project, I suggest you install 32-bit Windows 7.
